For two weeks this August, Nora returns to Miami Light Project for a third residency developing her latest work, Portrait of Myself as My Father, a companion piece to her 2013 solo, rite riot, that will premiere at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse in October 2016.
AIR at The Light Box is a Pilot Contemporary Performance Artist Residency Program funded by Knight Arts Challenge Miami focused on providing space and time for mid-career artists to research and develop new work, explore new techniques of making work, and engage our community in the process. This residency program is designed provide artists the opportunity to realize their full artistic vision in a creative and exciting environment.
Artists-in-residence will receive housing, per diem, substantial free studio space and opportunities to present their works in its various stages of development. To assist with their research, artists will have up to six hours per day in our fully equipped black box theater and rehearsal studio. Each two-week residency will have a public component, which can take the form of an artist talk, an intimate discussion, a work-in-progress performance, a master class or another means of sharing the work with the community.
